Live from Milan.

Sea_urchin

Several of our buyers at Design Within Reach are in Milan at the Salone Internazionale Del Mobile, Italy’s world-class design showcase. I can’t help but be jealous. It sounds so dreamy to see all the latest technologies, materials and designs coming about before anyone else. Thanks to businessweek.com we can check out a few of the items they’re seeing. My favorite is a light in the shape of a sea urchin (above) by Kyttanen. The light isn’t actually produced until it’s ordered. When it is, it’s using stereolithography to 3-dimensionally "print" the lamp. Wow. Here’s a link to the slideshow with some of the products that are appearing at the fair.
